earl,

i thought you weren't one for talking politics on this forum?

if you can't hold the highest office in the land responsible, then who should field the blame? i thought the buck stops there? absolutely no accountablity in that god damned administration.

Ian: I don't think the subject of politics is intructional around this forum unless it has something to do with the band. The biggest reason is that there are those that incorrectly assume that all Dead fans are dyed in the wool liberal democrats. Gloating over the election is unbecoming in mixed company under those circumstances.

Our mutual devotion to the music is worthy of admiration on it's own, the subject of politics and the commentaries it provokes doesn't mesh with our usual feel good vibe.

Not following my own advice, when was the last American troops pulled from Kosovo? Were Europen victims of atrocities any more or less important than those in Iraq? Wasn't Clinton's management of the "war" in the Balkans characterized as a "quagmire?"

George could have handled the election differently, he could have been caught getting blown by an intern and impeached to keep the country's mind off his mismanaged war effort.

thanks for responding earl. i must admit, i'm all but done for the day.

you know i'm not looking for a fight and i'm certainly in no position to gloat. i know why i chimed in and i have no regrets. i would have loathed myself if i bit my tongue any longer. there is a time and place for everything, and your right, it's not here.

as always, i look forward to reading your posts.

enjoy your weekend.

ian
